The 2019 Kate Awards

This past Thursday we awarded the 2019 Kathleen Walsh Richardson Citizenship Awards (aka the Kate Awards) to a few wonderful high school students here on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.  The Kate Award focuses on awarding high school students for their volunteering and citizenship efforts throughout the community in the memory of Kate Richardson.  Kate was a founding member of No Limits as well as an extremely active community volunteer who unfortunately passed away in 2012.

Below are pictures from the 2019 awards ceremony where the 2019 1st Place Winner, Ashleigh Edwards of Holly Grove Christian School, as well as an Honorable Mention Recipient, Elizabeth Reid of Northampton High School were presented with their prizes.  Not pictured in these photos is our second Honorable Mention Recipient of 2019, Tyler Joynes of Nandua High School.  No Limits is looking forward to meeting Tyler next week at a 2nd ceremony for the 2019 Kate Awards where he will be presented with his award as well.
